Report Scope

This report focuses on protective equipment worn in nonmotor sports, including:

  • Football
  • Baseball/softball
  • Ice hockey
  • Soccer
  • Lacrosse
  • Cycling
  • Fencing
  • Skiing/snowboarding
  • Wrestling
  • Water polo
  • Climbing
  • Equestrian sports

The emphasis is on commercially available equipment that is designed to prevent injury, rather than to protect injured tissue and promote healing once injury has occurred. The report also does not cover devices whose main purpose is enhancing performance and/or comfort, although they may also protect against injury.

Athletic footwear is not included due to the difficulty of distinguishing between sales of shoes to serious athletes, to whom their protective value is significant, and more casual wearers who wear them primarily for comfort and/or style. A similar rationale applies to cold weather clothing, such as ski parkas.

The report format includes the following major elements:

  • Executive summary
  • Definitions
  • Regulation
  • Technologies (basic principles, materials, specific applications, major patents)
  • Major end-user markets, 2016
  • Market drivers
  • Projected sales, 2017 to 2022
  • Manufacturer profiles
